I think there's one thing that we can all agree on: we're human beings first and foremost. When issues like race, gender, sexuality, and religion are seen instead of the human being behind the skin, it's dehumanizing. If someone were to look at me and only see my brown skin without considering the human I am, then I am being dehumanized.
Are movements that force us to look at race, gender, sexuality, religion, etc. helpful? Of course, they're helpful in the way that they're protecting those being attacked by oppressive systems - but at the base of most movements is the basic want to be treated the same as others, to not be considered "the other." It's a catch 22: by wanting the same rights, we have to acknowledge our identities - thus making us "the other" AND dehumanizing ourselves.
It's just been a thought I've personally been struggling with. I want to be a human being first and foremost, but I also want people to be aware of my race, gender, sexuality, religion. Every time I speak about my race, I feel like I'm asking people to look at my brown skin first, rather than consider the person I am.
